Charleston Wrap Fundraiser - Going on Now!

The PTA fall fundraiser is going on now through September 23rd. Charleston Wrap offers unique, quality wrapping paper as well as kitchen items, and personalized gifts. Last year, with the help of students, staff, and parents, the Charleston Wrap fundraiser brought in over $6,000 for the Spring Brook PTA to give back to our school! This helps pay for things like field trips, ice cream social, Art Awareness, and student and teacher resources. We are about half way through the sale, but only a quarter of the way to our goal. With your help, we hope to exceed last year's sales to raise more money for Spring Brook!



What you can do to help:

Register your student online through the Charleston Wrap website using our school ID (z-11280)
Share the link through email, text, Facebook, Twitter, and any other social media you use! This is a great opportunity for distant family and friends that want to help!
Send in prize coupons to school as your student sells online or catalog items to earn instant prizes in the classroom!
Submit all orders by September 23rd— checks should be payable to Spring Brook PTA
If you have any questions, please contact Tiffany Malik (tiffany.malik@gmail.com) or Marissa Kopp (marissakg@hotmail.com).



Thank you for your support!
